Well, just when Psystar had gone off my radar, it's back. The company, which found itself in legal hot water with Apple after it began selling a Mac clone, filed an antitrust countersuit against Apple in August.
Tuesday, a federal judge dismissed the countersuit, according to InformationWeek. Paul McDougall writes:
Alsup noted that many of Psystar's arguments actually worked against its allegation of an Apple monopoly... [He] also said Psystar failed to provide evidence for its claim that Apple can increase prices for Mac-based products without losing market share -- a situation that would indicate the presence of a monopoly market.
The judge found that Psystar had not offered proof of the monopoly it claimed, and gave the company 20 days (until Dec. 8 ) to ask him to reconsider the dismissal.
